This can be a stressful and emotional time. You’ve been injured on the job, and now to add insult to injury, you’re unsure about your financial position. You’ll be facing potential unpaid time off, and hospital bills on top of everything else.
But at The Haig Law Firm, it’s our job to make you feel safe again. When you enlist our services in Roanoke, we’ll ensure you don’t find yourself jobless, or in debt.
Am I Eligible for Workers’ Compensation?
If you have suffered an injury at work, chances are you are eligible for worker’s compensation. Accidents can include:
- • Lifting injuries
- • Slip and fall injuries
- • On the job trucking/auto
- • Industrial amputations
- • Accidental
- • Unsafe products/equipment
So, unless you’re hoping to get time off for a paper cut, chances are you’ll be covered. There are two types of disability policies we can aim for when filing a workers’ compensation claim: short-term and long-term.
Short-term policies have a waiting period of 0-14 days with a benefit of two years maximum, while long-term policies will have you waiting several weeks to several months but with a benefit period of years or even the rest of your life.
As workers’ comp lawyers, at The Haig Law Firm, we’re experienced and positioned to get you the absolute best help available.
Many of our Roanoke clients reported confusing about what to do when they were injured in the workplace. A workplace injury happens suddenly and unexpectedly, and if you’ve never dealt with one before you’ll be wondering what the next step is.
First, make obtaining treatment a priority. Treatment will be covered by your employer or their insurance carrier so don’t be concerned about this.
Once you have attended to yourself, you’ll need to notify your supervisor immediately. If you fail to do so within 30 days from the injury you can lose your right to compensation.
From here, you can get in touch with The Haig Law Firm, and work together with us to file a workers’ compensation claim. With workers’ comp lawyers at your side, you’ll be guaranteed to do everything by the book and receive the funds and time needed for your recovery.
